5 battles – Using the now famous ruleset -To the Strongest!

  • Second Mantinea 362 BCE – Nine years after the defeat at Leuctra, the Spartans might be about to learn a second expensive lesson in tactical innovation at the hands of Epaminondas’ Theban steamroller.
  • The Trebbia – 218 BCE – The first battle of the Second Punic War – Hannibal and his transalpine elephants vs. the might Republican Rome.
  • Ruspina – 46 BCE – “Numidians, sir, thousands of ‘em!” Asymmetric warfare as legionaries take on hordes off lightly-armed but highly mobile Africans.
  • Second Bedriacum – Late in the Year of the Four Emperors, two Roman armies fight through the night to determine the fate of their Emperors. Special rules will model the confusion of a night action. Will the Flavians survive to greet the dawn?
  • The Battle of Soggy Bottom, 1643 in 28mm using the new “For King and Parliament” rules. A somewhat larger version of the Salute game, if you saw that.
